Prerequisites

To use Twitter Login, you must have a Twitter account with a mobile number set on it.

Activate or Deactivate Provider

The Twitter provider is disabled by default and needs to be activated before use. To do this, go to Settings -> Users -> Social Login and click the "Activate" link on the Twitter provider box. A provider can be defined for each brand, the "Enabled" option should be toggled to on for it to be available to users on the frontend.

The provider can be deactivated by toggling the "Enabled" option to off for all brands.
